Johnny Depp proves his music career is back on track
With the libel lawsuit against Amber Heard over, Johnny Depp is determined to get his career back on track – starting with music.
Despite having spent most of his career as an actor, music is Depp’s first love. In fact, like CBS News reported in 2011 that the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star dropped out of school at age 15 in hopes of becoming a rock star. However, Depp eventually found fame when he turned to acting. He has Nicholas Cage to thank for that. as he told Oprah Winfrey in 2004, in 1983, he was “basically an unemployed musician” and started applying for jobs. “Nick suggested I meet his agent because he thought I should be an actor,” he explained. That said, acting was far from something he had considered prior to Cage’s suggestion. Rather, Depp told Winfrey that he only agreed to try it out of desperation. “I just thought, well… you know, right now I’ll do anything. I just have to pay the rent,” he revealed. Luckily for Depp, the acting turned out pretty well. Over the years, however, music has remained his primary passion and he makes it a point to keep the two separate. In 2015, he said, “I hate the idea, ‘come and see me play the guitar, because you’ve seen me in 12 movies’…You want the people who listen to the music to be only interested in the music,” per the guard†
Well, for those who to be fans of the music, Depp just made an exciting announcement.
